    I'm very keen on a four day weekend to look forward to, with another four day weekend only a month later. 😁

    My company doesn’t recognise good Friday as a day off. 😢

    So unless I take annual leave it won’t be a 4 day weekend for me.

    Mine do, but they don't recognise Christmas Eve as a day off, so swings and roundabouts. 😂

    Mine also don’t recognise Christmas Eve. 😂😂

    Lol 😄 yeah it's a regular working day in my workplace, but we finish early, so that's something.

    It's on a Saturday this Christmas- can't wait to not have to work it. 😁

    Into the 330s now in the countdown. January well and truly on the way out now.

    Extra day off this year. Good start to the year.

    Yeah, loving the idea of St. Brigids day for the first Monday in Feb. Perfect way to celebrate getting through January in one piece!!

    It's pay day and I'm going to be booking our hotel for our summer holiday to London/Goodwood.😁

    The last time I was abroad was the week Ireland went into lockdown!

    Nice. We are looking at ferries so UK or maybe even France on the cards. Early days but exciting to even be thinking/talking about it!

    Positivity is off the charts this morning across the board. That double bank holiday in March is looking like it’s going to be sweet now.

    Gonna try and plan a weekend away somewhere make the most of it.

    Oh that's fabulous. Edinburgh is a great city and one that's perfect for solo travelers. Feels very safe too, I've never seen any trouble.

    I've gone on my own, with one other person and with a group of friends and loved it every time. Heading again in 3 weeks.

    Solo traveling is liberating, do and see what you want to do. Enjoy it ❤️

    im feeling positive we won’t see any restrictions until potentially next October/November if at all.

    Thanks Posy



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,466 ✭✭✭ TRS30


    Hope you have a great trip gidget.

    I did a bit of sole travelling back when I was younger and loved it. Done lots of couple and group travelling since and while all have their pros and cons, sometimes I missing those times being able do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted.

    Inter railed (remember that anyone!?) around Europe by myself in my late teens during my summer break from college... loved it, scared as they come at the start (& on more than one lonely night in a city I hadn't a breeze about) but settled into it & met some brilliant brilliant people, Its most definitely a mind opening experience & the freedom is fantastic if embraced.
